4 Chord Composing
I’ll be releasing a full video course about how I teach “4-Chord Composing” in August 2017.
If you’ve accessed these resources, you’ll now be on my email list and I’ll let you know when we launch the course with a webinar in late August.
In the meantime, check out My 10 Week Chord Teaching Demo (click to open):
